Prudential Lighting

Custom WordPress Website Design With Stunning Galleries And A Custom Publishing System That Provides Easy Access To Critical Technical Assets

Prudential Lighting has been designing, engineering, and manufacturing architectural lighting fixtures in Los Angeles since 1955. As one of the nation’s top architectural luminary companies, Prudential Lighting is paving the way for new illumination technologies and elevating the industry standard. With an enviable list of IES and PIA awards, the company serves clients ranging from major retail outlets and libraries to concert halls and office spaces.

The company’s website was lacking the latest technology, and not using responsive design, which was a problem when one-third of their site visitors are using a smartphone. Every change to the website required getting their web agency involved, requests took a long time to complete, and the site was difficult to use.

Prudential Lighting wanted a site that was new and different—something that had never been done before in the lighting industry. They knew they wanted to move to WordPress, discovered Zeek through our leadership of the Orange County WordPress community, and hired us to redesign the site, provide multiple ways to access information, and create a better process for accessing spec sheets and critical product information.

Key Features

PROGRAMMING: Developed in PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL, with WordPress. A custom WordPress widget allows visitors to quickly select technical specifications files they need and download them in one easy to manage ZIP file.

CMS: WordPress is a user-friendly content management system that gives Prudential Lighting’s team full control over all content and media. They are able to create and edit content, create and edit image galleries, manage technical documents and downloads, and even provide password-protected content for agents all without having to edit code or get a developer involved.

DESIGN: Our design team created a modern, responsive design with a mobile-first approach that ensures the site looks stunning on all screens from mobile to desktop. The design operates as an interactive product catalog that leverages eye-catching image galleries featuring the company’s products. It also acts as a critical communication tool, providing clear paths to the exact information customers and sales representatives need most.

CONTINUED PARTNERSHIP: As Prudential Lighting’s needs change, we provide new solutions. Zeek is currently working on a CRM system to help the company provide marketing tools to their many sales agents with only the click of a button.
